Fox News’ hosts Sean Hannity and Jesse Watters mocked a Fox News contributor — who stated that President Obama was better for the economy than President Trump — on Hannity’s show Tuesday night.
“Obama, 13 million more Americans food stamps, 8 million more in poverty, lowest labor participation rates since the 70s, worst recovery since the 40s, lowest home ownership rate in 51 years, accumulated more debt than every other president before him combined,” Hannity stated to start the segment.
“Trump, 4 million new jobs created, the best labor participation rate that we’ve ever had. Record low unemployment … This is the single greatest economy that we have had in TEN YEARS. Tell me, what’s wrong with that, why would he want to go back to your friend Obama’s record and agenda?” he continued.
“Because he did better,” Jessica Tarlov, a Fox News contributor stated.
“Oh, god!” Watters responded.
“President Obama added over 11 million jobs. He got the unemployment rate down from 7.8% to 4.8%. There are 15 million Americans who are insured now because of President Obama. It is true. Don’t shake your head, I didn’t shake my head at you,” Tarlov responded.
“I’m not calling you stupid, but ‘it’s the economy, stupid,'” Watters continued.
Hannity had Watters and Tarlov on the show to debate which president had done more for the American economy and in a less than shocking result, Hannity named Watters the winner of the debate.
